Come join us to learn about getting involved with Love the Oceans! Love The Oceans is a non-profit marine conservation organisation in Guinjata Bay, Mozambique. We use research, education and diving to drive action towards a more sustainable future. We offer a cutting edge volunteer program that gives individuals the chance to work alongside our marine biologists and the local community helping with conservation and research.Volunteers gain experience through our research and community outreach over the space of 2 – 6 weeks (plus an optional extra week including 5 nights in the world famous Greater Kruger Natural Ecosystem!).As a volunteer, you form an essential part of our team. You will rotate around our principal activities of:
– Fisheries data collection
– Megafauna surveys
– Coral reef surveys
– Teaching and painting at the local schools
– Teaching swimming lessons to local children and adults
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity that will not only give you hands on practical experience that you will not get elsewhere, but also a leg up in the world of conservation careers!
